EMBEDDED SYSTEMS is an exciting, challenging and growing field which will spread through industry in future. With the advent of industrial automation, microcontrollers and applications have been around since the 1960’s in all manufacturing organizations, including chemical plants, automobile manufacturing units, nuclear plants, energy generation units, and the like. Every industrial sector viz., telecommunications, banking, health care, avionics, automobile, food processing, semiconductor electronics, defence etc., all use embedded systems to monitor and control the plants remotely. It should not be surprising that nearly 90 percent of the automation and applications end up in embedded systems.
Embedded systems and IoT are gaining importance in all aspects of engineering. It is expected that in the near future, no gadget will exist without software and embedded technology. IoT is connecting gadgets (things) through the internet and cloud. IoT is being implemented everywhere like in smart cities, security, smart agriculture and home automation. This has created a lot of buzz among industries and right now all the companies are looking for candidates who have practical experience with IoT. A Research and Advisory company predicted that 8.4 billion connected devices will be in use worldwide in 2017 and will reach 20.4 billion by 2020. In India alone, more than 1000 tech start-ups are engaged in IoT based projects, offering plenty of job opportunities.
Knowing the importance of such technologies, M.Tech (Embedded Systems) is launched in partnership with Arm, which is rapidly advancing IoT technologies through the design and development of the integral platforms, sensors, and subsystems that drive IoT performance. The courses of the program are designed with the involvement of industry partner Armto ensure that they match the global job market demand and reflect the current state of industry research areas. This collaboration facilitates knowledge sharing between both the organizations and improves students’ knowledge and skills in the aforementioned areas.
The students of the program will have an opportunity to work as iScholars at the Center for Embedded and IoT Systems (EIoT) which helps to gain hands-on experience and become industry-ready. The Center offers mini-projects, internship programs and projects in collaboration with Industries. A student can also explore other interdisciplinary research centers@SRU
This program provides a broad coverage of challenges and research issues to the design and management of automation.
The students are exposed to advanced courses such as IOT protocols, embedded system design, computing, kernel programming, software defined radio and many more.
The curriculum prepares students to take on complex challenges in the real world. Further it is helpful in continue their research and develop industrial applications.
Ample scope for pursuing interdisciplinary research through collaboration with Centers of IOT, Artificial intelligence and many more.
Hands-on experiential learning through remote labs that provide access to leading IoT platforms such as ARM Cortex based STM32, Raspberry Pi & Arduino.
